ePouta is designed for processing sensitive data. It allows you to deploy virtual machines and storage resources directly to your organisation’s internal network, not to the internet.

In ePouta security is taken to another level. ePouta is ideal for organizations that require a high performance and high security environment certified for sensitive data handling. ePouta is a generic platform that can be used for a variety of things.

You can use the ePouta web interface through a web browser or with a set of APIs, which allow programmatic management of resources. In order to access and use this service, you need a CSC user account.

ePouta is based on the open-source cloud software called OpenStack. Your data in ePouta is stored in Finland.

As a private cloud service, ePouta needs to be set up with your home organisation.

ePouta provides:

  • High performance computing with superior flexibility and user experience via Infrastructure-as-a-Service
  • Full control over the resources you deploy (virtual machines, storage, and networks)
  • A variety of resources: virtual machines, block devices, virtual networks, high performance computing and GPUs, and so on

If you don’t need sensitive data processing, look into cPouta or Rahti.
